I'd be aghast if Florence & The Machine aren't top 10 material this year, amount of press they've had and a curious Brit award to boot.

Anyways, to add to your list:

Frankmusik

Ladyhawke

....from the little I know.

Saw 5 of those artists last year

Think The Virgins will make huge strides this year

King Blues havereally surprised me with the airplay they are currently getting, thought they where alright & different, but not commercial.

White Lies are gonna be massive no doubt about that.

As timespeedup mentioned Ladyhawke, saw her last year thought she was interesting & the album is ok, but I don't expect anything major to happen, to much like bananarama for me :)

Looking forward to seeing Little Boots, Florence & the machine, missed those a few times...

Just heard the new one by Official Secrets Act - The Girl From The BBC I like it, it's a good hook

Really interesting list.

I saw ladyhawke quite early last yr too - good but too much of a 'sameness' for me and nothing spectacular so i'd be shocked if they made it big this yr.

The Virgins aren't anything new but i think they're one of the better ones in their genre at the moment n will get bigger this yr.

Little Boots - NO WAY. I'm not even gonna pretend that I can understand why this is a viable choice for good music. It's like listening to a European nanny sing to u!!!

I <3 Florence and The Machine and think they'e the one that shine most out of the list and will boom this year. I also personally like Red Light Company a lot though, (not that it's 2 everyones taste and I respect that), but I think they'll appeal to the masses too - they've got the commercial vibe going on and they produce decent, easy-to-listen-to music.
